“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013.”

Micah – All about princesses these days

Asher – That boy and his faces kill me. This smirk is one of my favorites



Sparrow Song

sparrowbeach Sweet Sparrow Song is a friend of Micah’s and one of the most precious little girls that I know. Sparrow and her family are near and dear to our hearts and family. Sparrow was born with a heart defect and has had two heart surgeries so far. Tomorrow is her third and final surgery. Here is a video to fill you on more details.

Please join us in praying for Sparrow’s surgery to go perfectly. Or send up well wishes or positive thoughts for this amazing, beautiful, sassy little girl. Also if you would like to donate financially to help pay for her medical bills, you can go here. sparrowsilly Or if you would like to send Sparrow a special present during her two week hospital stay (and two week bedrest recovery after the hospital) here are some ideas from Jessie:

*Age-appropriate movies (DVD’s)

*Books & puzzles – the girl LOVES books and puzzles! *Art & Education – paper, pens, colors, crayons and anything that would assist her in learning how to write her letters, numbers, colors, shapes, etc…  She is VERY interested in learning and naturally with me being a teacher, I’d rather stoke that fire than let her watch 5 Disney movies a day.

*Anything with or having to do kitties – she’s obsessed. Hello Kitty, stuffed kitties, cats, kittens, lions, tigers, she loves them all.  She sings Katy Perry’s “Roar” everyday.

*Sparrow has a Leapster Explorer and a Leapster Tag – games and books for both of these devices would be a HUGE help!  They are educational and entertaining.

*Sparrow also loves Squinkies – they’re tiny figurines that she collects.

*Flowers, balloons, cards, accessories, and treats

Micah – My precious girl turned 3 today, but this is from her princess party on Sunday at the park in our neighborhood. She was having so much fun and actually stopped to smile for a picture!

Asher – Poor Ash on the other hand only took about an hour nap all day and was exhausted by the end of the party. ha

Micah- My precious little dancearina (her own word) loves to jump

      * My husband posted this on his Instagram in black & white, and I loved it so much that I decided to do a B&W version too.

Asher – Poor boy is drooly and feverish. Cutting molars is no fun

Micah – My little daddy’s girl wanted to pick some heart shaped leaves from the tree

Asher – He wants to be bigger and loves trying to keep up with his big sis. They are really becoming little buddies. It’s precious
